"Barbara's novels are inspirational page-turners! She has Mennonite cousins in Lancaster County that took her visiting in several places. She wrote her novels true-to-life, and not exaggerating the lifestyle we live. or focusing on rumspringa, ordnung and shunning like some authors. She understands the Amish ways and wrote books that I can appreciate!" - Doretta Yoder, Associate Editor, The Connection,
"In this swift-paced series, set in Amish country, Barbara Michel blends romance, suspense, inspiration, and an accurate portrayal of a culture ... Here are real people, people with whose strengths and struggles we can identify. People we yearn to know better! The final page pairs a deep sense of satisfaction for a tale well-spun with expectency toward the next Michel novel--a further immersion into an uncluttered world of horse-drawn buggies, moon pies and a certain knowledge of what is truly significant." - Evelyn Minshull
